Somerville Arts Council launched Porchfest back in 2011 and it has taken off like wild fire. Perhaps you’ve sat on your porch and overheard a neighbor strumming guitar on another porch? Porchfest takes this idea and multiplies it. This is not a festival per se but rather a community event where Somervillians share their love of playing and listening to music. Think of Somerville Open Studios, which is for visual artists, but for music. There are over 100 bands registered to play this year.
